Trident will reach the end of its scheduled life in 2024
A father and daughter have been removed from the House of Commons' public gallery after protesting against the replacement of nuclear weapons.

Martin Wyness, 49, from Hereford, and his 13-year-old daughter Sophie unfurled a banner reading "Sane Government not more missiles".

Their actions came after a session of questions to defence ministers.

The government has outlined plans to spend up to 20bn on new submarines to carry Trident missile systems.

The pair were escorted out by security after standing up with their banner.

Before the protest photographer Mr Wyness said he had lost faith in the government to take the right decisions.
